Awesome! Did the Moab ride with Sacred Rides Sept. 2012. Great accomodations, great food, great guides (Johanna and Ryan), great shuttle (Mark Erickson, Mountain Bike Buddies), FANTASTIC rides.

We started with Pipedream, rode Slickrock, The Whole Enchilada, Magnificent Seven including the Portal Trail (Google this one, it's awesome!), and ended up with Moab Brand Trails. All in all, a fantastic mountain bike adventure. The guides were always up for another ride (or hike), the scenery is magnificent, and the trails are out of this world!

Just got back from our Mull Odyssey cruise. An amazing, truly special holiday. So many highlights to pick from but the amazing columnar basalt rock formations on Staffa; Lochbuie Standing Stone Circle; dolphins bow riding; huge jellyfish; 'helping' crew the ship; Tobermory; sunsets & rainbows; Iona and the fabulous scenery are a good start. Special thanks to Christophe and Amy for going above and beyond being the crew. I cannot recommend this fabulous trip and company enough!

St Hilda - a little gem of a sailboat - great holiday. Excellent crew - thanks to skipper Christophe and cook Kerry . Arnamurchan distillery - fascinating tour - a real find. Loved the island of Egg - hike to Kildonan followed by fresh mussels and chips at the pub in the sun - bliss! And then she sped, bonnie boat, over the sea to Skye.

Wonderful, memorable cruise of the Inner Hebrides. The staff was far above any expectations I may have had. Great communication and assistance with the office prior to the trip. The crew on board took wonderful care of us, and were always responsive to our needs and preferences. Seamanship was clearly superior. Food was outstanding!! The ship is small enough that you really get a sense of being on the water and in the islands. It is also large enough to have resources and comforts. I am happy to recommend it.

      About Sacred Rides Mountain Bike Holidays

      Founded in 1996, Sacred Mountain Bike Company has forged a way in the travel industry with their top notch customer service and thrilling itineraries.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Sacred Rides satisfies a niche, offering challenging but fulfilling mountain bike tours to experienced cyclists. Their expert guides are know every inch of the trails you traverse and live for revealing them to you, from secret roads, to unique local establishments. Most of their trips are for advanced riders - a detailed breakdown of the expectations for each skill level is on their website. Apart from the riding, their tours offer a great view of local culture, history, cuisine, and everyday life.

      Who Travels With Them?

      Their trips are best for active travelers who have some experience mountain biking, though different trips have different physical levels they require. They state that their trips are appropriate for Intermediate to Advanced riders. The age range is between 30 - 55, and groups are maximum 10 people. They state that groups are usually a mix of solo travelers, couples, and friends.

      Where Do They Operate?

      They have trips in select countries around the world. These include British Columbia and Ontario in Canada; California and Utah in the USA; Costa Rica and Guatemala in Central America; Peru and Patagonia in South America; The Azores, Greenland, Slovenia, Croatia, Switzerland, and Italy in Europe; New Zealand, and Nepal.

      Why Travel With Them?

      After your ride, travel concierges can help you extend your trip if you’re interested in seeing more of the country. Their core belief as a company is that mountain biking can make a difference in people’s lives. If you are an avid cyclist looking to stretch your comfort zone and see the world on two wheels, they are the perfect choice.

      About St Hilda Sea Adventures

      St. Hilda Sea Adventures provide the unique experience to see Scotland from the sea. They offer many activities and private excursions - a perfect travel experience for families, older travellers, and small multi-gen groups.

      What Makes Them Stand Out?

      Taking only up to 11 guests (6 on St Hilda and 11 on Seahorse II), their tours are incredibly unique, as you cruise aboard a classic ex-tall ship (St Hilda) or a proper small ship (Seahorse II). Activities include sailing, swimming, sea kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing, rock pooling, and lobster potting. Or, you can simply choose to just relax and watch the spectacular wildlife and scenery float by.

      Who Travels With Them?

      All ages and all types enjoy traveling with St. Hilda Sea Adventures. Families, couples, and solo passengers are all welcome. Passengers can choose to do as much or as little as they like. This is a great trip for young kids to enjoy as well, for the thrill of hoisting the sails like a true sailor.

      Where Do They Operate?

      The West Coast of Scotland is where they specialize, the Outer and Inner Hebrides specifically. Such a niche focus is a huge positive for those interested in getting a unique view of this part of the world.

      Why Travel With Them?

      Their Scottish cruises give you the opportunity to see extraordinary wildlife and to cruise aboard a small ship with skipper and chef and a small group of passengers. All food is included, and there are many opportunities for interesting excursions. Some excursions are included in the price however, you can also arrange excursions based on your interests. These are not included but allow for a wonderful amount of personalization to your travel experience with St. Hilda Sea Adventures.
